Abstract

In this paper, we propose a molecular multiple-input multiple-out (MIMO) communication platform using binary time shift keying (BTSK) modulation to model in-vessel network systems. A notable prior work introduced a vessel-like communication testbed, yet leaving a challenge to achieve a higher data rate. We suggest an improved version of testbed adding MIMO configurations with modulation techniques. The flow-assist channel model for MIMO systems has been limitedly investigated yet, the feasibility of MIMO systems with timing-based modulation is shown in this paper. The platform uses acid and base molecules as information carriers, and the received output is a set of pH values varying over time. The MIMO platform yields a higher data rate than the single-input single-output (SISO) systems. Furthermore, the system is flexible to any desired configurations, which can illustrate actual blood vessel environments.
